Madhumita’s Moone Moonu Varthai exists at the other end of the spectrum. It’s so low-key that you feel one of those whooshes would blow it right off the screen. Maybe that’s why I liked it.
And it’s full of little surprises, right from the title. I thought the three words were “I love you” — I expected a rom-com.
Venkatesh Harinathan takes it on the chin, and is soon making a joke about kadalai. Like the film, he’s pleasantly nuts.
This is an accepted theory and movie followers are much aware of this. But in the Madhumitha directorial Moonae Moonu Vaarthai (MMV), the three words refer to something else which her lead characters are involved with.
The problem with MMV is, it is neither here nor there. Sometimes, it gives a serious feel while some other times, there is flippancy.
Verdict: An attempt at evoking fun, which isn't consistent throughout.
